Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Sony.

Interview Details – I had a phone interview with basic technical questions. My interviewer was kind of awkward and it seemed like he wasn't prepared to give the interview. We talked for about 30 minutes and it seemed like most answers I gave he checked on a sheet of paper.

Interview Question – I cant really remember the questions, but basic knowledge of hardware and software would be recommended.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I still needed to finish college and graduate

Computer Programmer Interview

Computer Programmer
San Diego, CA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Sony in April 2013.

Interview Details – I submitted my resume online in the morning and they contacted me via email later on the same day asking to schedule a phone interview. I replied with my available times the next day after and they scheduled the phone interview within the next 3 or so business days. The phone interview was done with a manager (but with like 8 years of programming experience). Asked for me to talk about myself and then went into technical questions. He told me I would be contacted in a week either way. I was contacted a week later through the phone about how they went with another candidate. Disappointing since it was a job that I really wanted, but the other candidate had more experience so it was understandable. Very nice process and they were very cordial about it.

Interview Question – What do I like about Java/C and what don't I like.   Answer Question
